The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    I dont get how... 462 dead.

    I am so incredibly stoked, I wish I had a video, aargh.

    Prior to comencing Oly training 8 or so weeks ago the most weight I ever handled raw was 170/374. I felt like deading and hit a 200/440 raw a few weeks ago.

    I did an early training and somehow pulled 462. Its was hard as hell but my grip was not the limiting factor at all!!! I dont get were this new grip strength has come from. Imma try some rack pulls and see what i can really hold.

    Excerpt from my journal...
    June 4, 2007

    Deadlifting in a cold gym at 6am... how hardcore.

    Convenetional
    Blah blah
    180/396x1/1
    210/462x1 (100% RAW)

    add straps now... grip was busted after that.

    SLDL
    140/308x3/3/3
    160/352x2/2

    Sumo deadlifts
    140x3/3/3/5 screaming the weight up.

    Woo!
    Sorry for the no video, I was having enough trouble walking straight at 6am let alone grabbing my cam. but I have my 485 belted and straps to prove I can move the weight.

    ..oh, and my form was perfect.

    Being a strong teenager means nothing.

    My wrists hurt, but some people don't have wrists to be sore. My knees have tendinitis, but some people don't have legs to get tendinitis in. I seem to be going backwards with training, yet some people can't even walk let alone lift 400 pounds on a daily basis.

    Dust out the vagina, and keep on lifting.

    Damn, fuzz. Nice work. You are a big ass 14 year old so I'm not surprised you can move that kind of weight. BTW, that oly stuff will really improve your grip so I'm not surprised you had no trouble holding onto that.

    Nice job Fuzzy!
    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

    Well, since power cleans challenge my grip more than anything else, I bet that's where the grip strength came from. Nice pull, BTW.

    Very nice lift Fuzzy! My only consolation is the fact that you weigh 30lbs more than me! We'll just ignore the fact that you're 14... It's easy to pretend you're 30
